Hi Kaveh,

If you are using Revolution 2.5 and you want to know
what special properties and messages there are for
scrollbars, go to the documentation, click the
'Object' button in the toolbar, then use the treeview
on the left to drill into 'Objects' > 'Scrollbar' >

In Revolution 2.2, youcan get the same information by
going to the 'Transcript Language Dictionary', and
usign the 'Show' option menu at the top to show only
the scrollbar messages or properties.

In this case, I think you wat to react to any change
in the value set by the user, so you'll want to catch
the 'srollbarDrag' message and handle it.

Hope this helped,

Jan Schenkel.
